South Rd: under or over
Recent articles in both the Sunday Mail and The Advertiser outline in more detail the proposed upgrade of South Rd. It seems that they are currently looking at two options: one that takes traffic underground for the full 10 kilometres and one the has a tunnel and at grade development. Unfortunately, the latter proposal has the at grade development in the section from the Gallipoli underpass to Daws Rd (or thereabouts). This would leave the section through Clarence Park moving huge volumes of traffic as well as the infrastructure needed a to allow movement of vehicles onto and off the road. The former option is, in my opinion, more in line with what residents have indicated would be most suitable. The link takes you to a Channel 7 report.
